The Batja Malnigan Journey


Made by students from Mooroopna Secondary College

These boys from Mooroopna Secondary College took part in a Woongi Boys
Literacy Project which became a journey for them all. They documented their
stories by writing and recording a rap and by keeping an illustrated journal of
their experiences as they moved on to traditional dance and story telling through
dance. They formed a group – Batja Malnigan Dance Group – that now performs
at community events in the wider Goulburn Valley region. This is their story.
